Aspirin Gastro-Resistant Tablets 28x75mg
Aspirin is a non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID). It has anti-platelet actions which mean that it can stop the blood from clotting and blocking blood flow to important areas like the heart or brain.
This means that it can help prevent heart attacks and angina or chest pains due to lack of blood supply to the heart muscle tissue. It can also prevent the occurrence of mini-strokes in susceptible patients.
Aspirin Tablets 75mg Enteric Coated are useful because Aspirin at this dose has been found to prevent further angina, heart attacks, mini-strokes in patients with a previous history of these conditions, when taken regularly.
This product has been coated specially so that the Aspirin will be released slowly in the gastrointestinal tract and therefore not cause any irritation to the stomach lining. Due to the slow release of the Aspirin, this product is not useful for relieving acute pain.
